The United States, Great Britain, & Israel
This is a long but very exciting journey revealing the secrets hidden for almost 3000 years. This you must know and understand to know the nations, because God tells you who you are.
First God makes Abraham a promise (a covenant) of material wealth. This promise is recorded throughout the Bible. I wont list all the scriptures but click onto the link if you want to learn more. The Promises youll see was passed down through the generations to Isaac, Jacob, etc.
Genesis 12:1-3 Now the LORD had said unto Abram, Get thee out of thy country, and from thy kindred, and from thy father's house, unto a land that I will shew thee: And I will make of thee a great nation, and I will bless thee, and make thy name great; and thou shalt be a blessing: And I will bless them that bless thee, and curse him that curseth thee: and in thee shall all families of the earth be blessed.
This promise is actually two fold as you will see, the first of material, national, and racial blessing and second the spiritual promise of grace, It involves a promise made to David.
In Galatians you can see that the spiritual part of the blessing is Christ being born from Abrahams seed. As Galatians 3:16 explains, Now to Abraham and his seed were the promises made. He saith not, And to seeds, as of many; but as of one, And to thy seed, which is Christ. ...... Notice the word "seed" is in it's singular form. Later you'll see the same word in the plural form meaning his descendants.
Genesis 18:18 Seeing that Abraham shall surely become a great and mighty nation, and all the nations of the earth shall be blessed in him
Genesis 17:3-8 And Abram fell on his face: and God talked with him, saying, As for me, behold, my covenant is with thee, and thou shalt be a father of many nations. Neither shall thy name any more be called Abram, but thy name shall be Abraham; for a father of many nations have I made thee. And I will make thee exceeding fruitful, and I will make nations of thee, and kings shall come out of thee. And I will establish my covenant between me and thee and thy seed after thee in their generations for an everlasting covenant, to be a God unto thee, and to thy seed after thee. And I will give unto thee, and to thy seed after thee, the land wherein thou art a stranger, all the land of Canaan, for an everlasting possession; and I will be their God.
Genesis 17:-15-16, And God said unto Abraham, As for Sarai thy wife, thou shalt not call her name Sarai, but Sarah shall her name be. 16 And I will bless her, and give thee a son also of her: yea, I will bless her, and she shall be a mother of nations; kings of people shall be of her.
Notice in the above verse God said he would make Abraham a father to many nations. Not just one. The Jews have never been many nations. So you are about to see what God ment by that.
Genesis 18:18, Seeing that Abraham shall surely become a great and mighty nation, and all the nations of the earth shall be blessed in him? .. As you see now God says hell make Abraham A great and mighty nation . And he also said in the previous verses he would make him a father to many nations. You are going to see how this promise is two phase and how it is divided when Jacob receives the promise from Isaac.
Genesis 17:20-21, And as for Ishmael, I have heard thee: Behold, I have blessed him, and will make him fruitful, and will multiply him exceedingly; twelve princes shall he beget, and I will make him a great nation. 21 But my covenant will I establish with Isaac, which Sarah shall bear unto thee at this set time in the next year.
Notice Ishmael in the above verse. The descendants of Ishmael are the Arabs of today. This fact has not been hidden like the identity of Israel has been through the centuries.
As you see above in Genesis verse 21, the covenant was passed down to Isaac, as God said he would establish it in Abrahams seed; his Descendants
Genesis 25:5, And Abraham gave all that he had unto Isaac.
Notice in the following verses God says in Genesis 22:17 Abrahams seed will possess the gates to his enemies and in Genesis 24:60 God says Rebekahs seed, Isaacs wife will possess the gates to their enemies too. A gate is a narrow passageway, entrance or exit. Speaking on a national level a gate would be as the Panama Canal, the Suez Canal, the strait of Gibraltar, etc. The United States of America and England together owned all the canals in the world at one time but slowly we gave them away. Jimmy Carter gave away the Panama Canal just as we are giving our countries wealth away by NAFTA and to foreigners coming into our country.
Genesis 22:17, That in blessing I will bless thee, and in multiplying I will multiply thy seed as the stars of the heaven, and as the sand which is upon the sea shore; and thy seed shall possess the gate of his enemies;................... Genesis 24:60, And they blessed Rebekah, and said unto her, Thou art our sister, be thou the mother of thousands of millions, and let thy seed possess the gate of those which hate them.
Isaac has two sons, the first, Esau who are the people of Turkey today and as you read in Genesis 28:8-9 Esau married into Ishmael, the Arabs. This is also an already known fact. The hidden mysterious ways of God are yet to be seen. Continue please.
Genesis 25:21-26, And Isaac intreated the LORD for his wife, because she was barren: and the LORD was intreated of him, and Rebekah his wife conceived. 22 And the children struggled together within her; and she said, If it be so, why am I thus? And she went to enquire of the LORD. 23 And the LORD said unto her, Two nations are in thy womb, and two manner of people shall be separated from thy bowels; and the one people shall be stronger than the other people; and the elder shall serve the younger. 24 And when her days to be delivered were fulfilled, behold, there were twins in her womb. 25 And the first came out red, all over like an hairy garment; and they called his name Esau. 26 And after that came his brother out, and his hand took hold on Esau's heel; and his name was called Jacob: and Isaac was threescore years old when she bare them.
Esau was the first born, so the birthright of Abraham was rightfully his and was, until he sold it to his brother, Jacob.
Genesis 25:31 And Jacob said, Sell me this day thy birthright. 32 And Esau said, Behold, I am at the point to die: and what profit shall this birthright do to me? 33 And Jacob said, Swear to me this day; and he sware unto him: and he sold his birthright unto Jacob.
You can also read about Jacob and his mom deceiving his father Isaac into blessing him instead of Esau. This is recorded in Genesis Chapter 27. Notice verses 22-23, And Jacob went near unto Isaac his father; and he felt him, and said, The voice is Jacob's voice, but the hands are the hands of Esau. 23 And he discerned him not, because his hands were hairy, as his brother Esau's hands: so he blessed him.
God confirms the promise to Isaac in Genesis 26:2-5, And the LORD appeared unto him, and said, Go not down into Egypt; dwell in the land which I shall tell thee of: 3 Sojourn in this land, and I will be with thee, and will bless thee; for unto thee, and utno thy seed, I will give all these countries, and I will perform the oath which I sware unto Abraham thy father; 4 And I will make thy seed to multiply as the stars of heaven, and will give unto thy seed all these countries; and in thy seed shall all the nations of the earth be blessed; 5 Because that Abraham obeyed my voice, and kept my charge, my commandments, my statutes, and my laws
In Genesis 28:3-4 Isaac blesses Jacob again to receive the promises of Abraham . Genesis 28:3 And God Almighty bless thee, and make thee fruitful, and multiply thee, that thou mayest be a multitude of people; 4 And give thee the blessing of Abraham, to thee, and to thy seed with thee; that thou mayest inherit the land wherein thou art a stranger, which God gave unto Abraham."
The Lord appears to Jacob and confirms the blessing in verses 14, And thy seed shall be as the dust of the earth, and thou shalt spread abroad to the west, and to the east, and to the north, and to the south: and in thee and in thy seed shall all the families of the earth be blessed. .. Notice God says they would spread to the west, east, north, and south.
People err in verse 15. Genesis 28:15 And, behold, I am with thee, and will keep thee in all places whither thou goest, and will bring thee again into this land; for I will not leave thee, until I have done that which I have spoken to thee of. . People think this has already happened, but if youll look at Jeremiah 50:19-20 among others youll see this is speaking of when Jesus returns .. Jeremiah 50:19-20, And I will bring Israel again to his habitation, and he shall feed on Carmel and Bashan, and his soul shall be satisfied upon mount Ephraim and Gilead. 20 In those days, and in that time, saith the LORD, the iniquity of Israel shall be sought for, and there shall be none; and the sins of Judah, and they shall not be found: for I will pardon them whom I reserve.
Did you notice in the above verses of Jeremiah that Israel and Judah are two separate people? As you continue to read the most fascinating amazing mystery will be revealed to you, the true identity of Israel and Judah. It all begins when God changes Jacobs name from Jacob to Israel, as youll see in the following verses.
Genesis 32:27-28, And he said unto him, What is thy name? And he said, Jacob. 28 And he said, Thy name shall be called no more Jacob, but Israel: for as a prince hast thou power with God and with men, and hast prevailed.
Again .. Genesis 35:10-11, And God said unto him, Thy name is Jacob: thy name shall not be called any more Jacob, but Israel shall be thy name: and he called his name Israel. 11 And God said unto him, I am God Almighty: be fruitful and multiply; a nation and a company of nations shall be of thee, and kings shall come out of thy loins;
Notice in the above verse God says Jacob (Israel) shall become A nation and a Company of Nations and Kings hall come out of him not just one, but Kings. As you will see the United States is the Mighty Nation and England is the Company of Nations and the Jews are the tribe of Judah.
As Jesus continuously says, WATCH! Check this out. Jumping ahead a little.
When God blessed Jacob in Genesis 28 as you saw earlier, Jacob had set a stone for his pillow that night when the Lord appeared to him. That stone sat under the Throne of England, Scotland, and Ireland for centuries. Every King or Queen was coronated sitting over this stone. There is even a little sign by it that says Jacobs pillow stone,(to learn more of this stone click here). The stone after 700 years at Westminster Abbey was recently moved (the year the Abomination of Desolation was sat up in God's True Church, continue reading and you'll see) to Edinburgh Castle in Scotland. As you read youll see how Jeremiah and his secretary Baruch brought it to Ireland.
|Genesis 28:22 and this stone, which I have set for a pillar, shall be God's house |
Israel had 12 sons and
they became known as The 12 Tribes of Israel. Ten of
them became known as "The Lost Ten Tribes of Israel",
lost to the world just as God said he would do. God knows where
they are and he reveals it to you. Continue on
. 2 Kings
17:18, "Therefore the LORD was very angry with Israel,
and removed them out of his sight: there was none left but the tribe of
In Genesis chapter 49:1-28 God tells what will happen to the tribes of Israel in the Last Days. - And Jacob called unto his sons, and said, Gather yourselves together, that I may tell you that which shall befall you in the last days. 2 Gather yourselves together, and hear, ye sons of Jacob; and hearken unto Israel your father.
3 Reuben, thou art my firstborn, my might, and the beginning of my strength, the excellency of dignity, and the excellency of power: 4 Unstable as water, thou shalt not excel; because thou wentest up to thy father's bed; then defiledst thou it: he went up to my couch.
5 Simeon and Levi are brethren; instruments of cruelty are in their habitations. 6 O my soul, come not thou into their secret; unto their assembly, mine honour, be not thou united: for in their anger they slew a man, and in their selfwill they digged down a wall. 7 Cursed be their anger, for it was fierce; and their wrath, for it was cruel: I will divide them in Jacob, and scatter them in Israel.
8 Judah, thou art he whom thy brethren shall praise: thy hand shall be in the neck of thine enemies; thy father's children shall bow down before thee. 9 Judah is a lion's whelp: from the prey, my son, thou art gone up: he stooped down, he couched as a lion, and as an old lion; who shall rouse him up? 10 The sceptre shall not depart from Judah, nor a lawgiver from between his feet, until Shiloh come; and unto him shall the gathering of the people be. 11 Binding his foal unto the vine, and his ass's colt unto the choice vine; he washed his garments in wine, and his clothes in the blood of grapes: 12 His eyes shall be red with wine, and his teeth white with milk."
13 Zebulun shall dwell at the haven of the sea; and he shall be for an haven of ships; and his border shall be unto Zidon.
14 Issachar is a strong ass couching down between two burdens: 15 And he saw that rest was good, and the land that it was pleasant; and bowed his shoulder to bear, and became a servant unto tribute.
16 Dan shall judge his people, as one of the tribes of Israel. 17 Dan shall be a serpent by the way, an adder in the path, that biteth the horse heels, so that his rider shall fall backward. 18 I have waited for thy salvation, O LORD.
19 Gad, a troop shall overcome him: but he shall overcome at the last. 20 Out of Asher his bread shall be fat, and he shall yield royal dainties.
21 Naphtali is a hind let loose: he giveth goodly words.
22 Joseph is a fruitful bough, even a fruitful bough by a well; whose branches run over the wall: 23 The archers have sorely grieved him, and shot at him, and hated him: 24 But his bow abode in strength, and the arms of his hands were made strong by the hands of the mighty God of Jacob; (from thence is the shepherd, the stone of Israel:)25 Even by the God of thy father, who shall help thee; and by the Almighty, who shall bless thee with blessings of heaven above, blessings of the deep that lieth under, blessings of the breasts, and of the womb: 26 The blessings of thy father have prevailed above the blessings of my progenitors unto the utmost bound of the everlasting hills: they shall be on the head of Joseph, and on the crown of the head of him that was separate from his brethren.
27 Benjamin shall ravin as a wolf: in the morning he shall devour the prey, and at night he shall divide the spoil.
28 All these are the twelve tribes of Israel: and this is it that their father spake unto them, and blessed them; every one according to his blessing he blessed them.
Each one of Israels sons became nations as you will see. The promises given to Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob now become divided; the material wealth going to Joseph and the spiritual blessing going to Judah. You can see this in the above verses of Genesis 49:1-28 and clearly in 1 Chronicles 5:2, For Judah prevailed above his brethren, and of him came the chief ruler; but the birthright was Joseph's.
And in Genesis 49:10, The sceptre shall not depart from Judah
This is the lost key
Joseph had two sons Ephraim and Manasseh. The material part of the promise was passed down to them, the mighty nation and the company of nations as you'll see.
Genesis 48:16 "The Angel which redeemed me from all evil, bless the lads; and let my name be named on them, and the name of my fathers Abraham and Isaac; and let them grow into a multitude in the midst of the earth."
Did you notice in the previous verse Israel said let my name be named on them. You'll notice as you read your Bible that God refers to the people led by Ephraim and Manasseh as Israel and the tribe of Judah was refered to as the tribe of Judah. Other places in the Bible it refers to Ephraim and Manasseh as "The House of Israel" and "The House of Jacob". Look on all ancient maps and you'll see Israel dwelt in the northern part of the state of Israel and Judah lived in the southern part. ........ example........ 1 Kings 12:21 "And when Rehoboam was come to Jerusalem, he assembled all the house of Judah, with the tribe of Benjamin, an hundred and fourscore thousand chosen men, which were warriors, to fight against the house of Israel, to bring the kingdom again to Rehoboam the son of Solomon."
Micah 5:8 And the remnant of Jacob shall be among the Gentiles in the midst of many people as a lion among the beasts of the forest, as a young lion among the flocks of sheep: who, if he go through, both treadeth down, and teareth in pieces, and none can deliver.
As you see in the above verse God describes the U.S.A. as amoung the Gentiles, which we are. We lost the identifying sign of God as explained on the previous web page. We think ourselves to be gentile. Notice God describes our awsome power much like he described the Roman Empire's in the book of Daniel.
As you see the
birthright promise of the national wealth is on the heads of
Ephraim and Manasseh; known as Israel because Israel said let my
name be named on them, and the sceptre part of the promise went
to the Jews; Judah; which you'll see clearer as we continue.
After Jacob and his
12 sons died in Egypt, their children grew in about 225
years to a population of between 2 and 3 million. But Israels children became
slaves. Let's go to Exodus 1:6-14; " And Joseph died, and all his brethren, and
all that generation. And the children of Israel was fruitful, and increased
abundantly, and multiplied and waxed exceedingly mighty, and the land was filled
with them. Now there arose up a new king in Egypt, which new not Joseph... and
the Egyptians made the children of Israel to serve with rigour: and they made
their lives bitter with hard bondage."
Then God raised up
Moses to bring them out of Egypt and establish himself as
their king. For several generations God was their king, and you can read about
this in the books of Moses, Joshua, and Judges. Each tribe occupied it's own
territory much like the United States of America. The sceptre and the birthright
remained in the same nation.
God sat on the
throne over Israel; so it was called the Lords Throne. The people
of Israel began to grumble and complain and demanded for a man to be their king
as the Gentile Nations. They rejected God as their king.
In I Samuel 8:7-9
we see; " Hearken unto the voice of the people in all that
they say unto thee: For they have not rejected thee, but they have rejected me,
that I should not rein over them ... Howbeit yet protest solemnly unto them, and
shew them the manner of the king that shall rein over them."
Can you imagine ?
The people rejected God and wanted a human king instead. Saul
was their first human king and he rejected Gods laws and God rejected him. His
only son; Ishbosheth, reined for 2 years and then was killed. However Ishbosheth
never reined over the tribe of Judah (the Jews) they followed David as we see in
II Samuel 2:10; " Ishbosheth, Saul's son was forty years old when he began to
rein over Israel, and reined two years. But the House of Judah followed David."
David was the next to sit on the Lords Throne. Then his son Solomon, succeeded
him, as you see in I Chronicles 29:23; " Then Solomon sat on the' Throne of the
Lord as king instead of David his father, and prospered and all Israel obeyed
As we saw earlier
in chapter 1 that Jesus Christ is Lord, and he was in the
beginning with God the Father. These human kings of Israel were sitting on the
Lords Throne; since he was the first to sit upon it. Since Jesus Christ is Lord,
it was he that sat upon the throne ruling Israel. Jesus is the root and
offspring of David as we saw in Revelations 22:16; and in this case, the throne
is doubly his when he comes back to earth to claim it. And as you'll soon see it is still here on earth for him to claim.
In II Samual 23:1
and 5, we see that God made a covenant with David in addition to
the covenant he made with Abraham that was passed down through
his descendants. " Now these be the last words of David...
God... Hath made with me an everlasting covenant ordered in all
things and sure."
God had promised him that his throne would be established forever, and stand until Jesus came back to claim it as you will see. God also said as you will soon see that David would never lack for one of his descendants to be sitting on that throne. We all know God cannot lie; so these promises that he gave Abraham and David must stand even until this day. You will soon see.
In II Samual 7:4-5
and 12-16; " And it came to pass that night that the word of
the Lord came unto Nathan, saying, go and tell thy servant David,
Thus saith the Lord, shalt thou build me a house for me to dwell
in? ... When thy days be fulfilled, and thou shalt sleep with thy
fathers, I will set up thy seed after thee, which shall proceed
out of their bowels (which was Solomon) and I will establish his
kingdom forever, I will be his Father and he shall be my son. If
he commit iniquity, I will chastise him with the rod of man and
with the stripes of children of men, but my mercy shall not
depart away from him, as I took it from Saul, whom I put away
before thee, and thy house and thy kingdom shall be established
forever before thee: Thy throne shall be established
forever." As you can see here Davids throne is to be
established forever and if his descendants sin God will punish
them by the hands of man. God said he wouldn't utterly destroy
him like he did Saul before him.
In II Chronicles
13:5; " Ought ye not to know that the Lord God of Israel
gave the kingdom over Israel to David forever, even to him and to
his sons by a covenant of salt."
In Psalms 89:3-4; " I have made a covenant with my chosen, I have sworn unto David my servant, thy seed will I establish forever, and build up thy throne to all generations."
In psalms 89:28-37; " My mercy shall I keep for him for evermore, and my covenant shall stand fast with him. His seed also will I make to endure forever, and his throne as the days of heaven, if his children forsake my law, and walk not in my judgements, If they break my.statues, and keep not my commandments, then will I visit their transgressions with the rod, and their iniquity with the stripes. Nevertheless my loving kindness will I not utterly take from him, nor suffer my faithfulness to fail. My covenant will I not break, nor alter the thing that is gone out of my lips. Once have I sworn by my holiness that I will not lie unto David. His seed shall endure forever, and his throne as the sun before me. It shall be established forever as the moon, and as a faithful witness in heaven." Here again you see where David's throne shall be established forever and if his descendants sin they will be punished by the rod (of man) and the stripes (of children).
In Luke 1:31-32 we see where Jesus is given the throne of his father David; " And behold thou shalt conceive in thy womb, and bring forth a son, and shall call his name Jesus. He shall be great, and shall be called the son of the highest: And the Lord God shall give unto him the throne of his Father David."
In Jeremiah 33:17;
" For thus saith the Lord; David shall never want a man to
sit upon the throne of the House of Israel." That makes it
pretty plain in that last verse. If you'll notice he says "
the House of Israel ", not the House of Judah.
Jeremiah33:20-22; "Thus saith the Lord, If ye can break my
covenant of the day, and my covenant of the night, and that there
shall not be day or night in their season; then also may my
covenant be broken with David my servant, that he should not have
a son to rein upon his throne, and with the Levites and priest my
ministers. As the host of heaven cannot be numbered, neither the
sand of the sea measured: so will I multiply the seed of David my
servant and the Levites that minister unto him."
So as you've seen
the Lord said that throughout all generations that David would
never lack for a descendant of his to be sitting on the throne
Now you will see that the Israelites and the Jews are two seperate groups of people. All Jews are Israelites, but not all Israelites are Jews. Just as all Floridians are Americans, but not all Americans are Floridians.
In I Kings
11:11-13, we see where God is about to rend the kingdom out of
Solomons hands. " The Eternal said unto Solomon, for as much
as this is done of thee, and thou hast not kept my covenant and
my statues,which I have commanded thee, I will surely render the
kingdom from thee, and will give it to thy servant.
Notwithstanding in thy days, I will not do it for David thy
fathers sake: But I will rend it out of the hand of thy son.
Howbeit I will not rend away all the kingdom; but will give one
tribe to thy son for David my servant sake, and for Jerusalems
sake which I have chosen." Notice he is going to take the
kingdom out of his sons hands, but he is going to leave one tribe
so he won't break his promise to David.
The Bible records a
line of kings, all descendants of David, down to the King
Zedekiah, but where was it during the days Jesus walked the earth
and where is that throne now ? For the throne to be established
forever, it had to be on earth when Jesus walked the earth, and
it has to be on earth now.
In the last verse
we saw that God was going to take the kingdom out of the hands of
Solomons son and give it to his servant. In I Kings11:26, we see
that this servant is Jerboam; " And Jeroboam the son of
Nebat, an Ephrathite of Zereda, Solomons servant..
In I Kings
11:31-32, we see where the prophet Ahijah was sent to Jeroboam
from God; "And he said to Jeroboam, Take thee ten pieces:
for thus saith the Lord, the God of Israel, Behold I will rend
the kingdom out of the hand of Solomon, and will give ten tribes
to thee: (but he shall have one tribe for my servant Davids
sake), and for Jerusalems sake, the city which I have chosen
out of all the tribes of Israel."
Notice God is
taking 10 tribes from Solomon and give them to Jeroboam, but he's
leaving the others so he can keep his promise to David. This is a
very exciting point ! These 10 tribes are known to the world
today as the lost 10 tribes of Israel. All great educators can
tell you they know who they are, but can't tell you what happened
to them or where they are today. The Bible tells exactly what
happened"to them and who they are today, as you will soon
I Kings 11:34-37;
God is talking about Solomon; " Howbeit I will not take the
whole kingdom out of his hand: but I will make him prince all the
days of his life for David my servants sake, whom I chose,
because he kept my commandments and my statues: but I will take
the kingdom out of his sons hand, and will give it unto thee,
even ten tribes, and unto his son will I give one tribe, that
David my servant may have a light always before me in Jerusalem,
the city which I have chosen me to put my name there. And I will
take thee, and thou shalt reign according to all that thy soul
desireth, and shalt be king over Israel." As you see God is
taking the kingdom and giving it to Jeroboam; an Euphrathite(from
So now as you see
the kingdom of Israel is being divided into two nations; Jeroboam
of Ephraim reigning king over the 10 tribes headed by Ephraim and
Manasseh, and Rehoboam reigning as king over the House of Judah.
This is a very important key; from now on the 10 tribes headed by
Ephraim and .Manasseh are referred to as The House of Israel or
the House of Jacob. The Jews are now referred to as the House of
Turn to I Kings 12:4 and you'll begin to see how this actually happened. When Solomons son Rehoboam succeeded to the throne, the people demanded that the heavy taxes imposed by his father be reduced, they-sent their leader Jeroboam; " Thy father made our yoke grievous: Now therefore make thou the grievous service of thy father, and his heavy yoke which he put upon us, lighter, and we will serve thee." In verse 11 we see his reply; " My father have chastised you with whips, but I will chastise you with scorpions." Israel rebelled and we see in verse 16 the command to the people; " Now see to thine own house." And in verses 19-20; " So Israel rebelled against the House of David unto this day. And it came to pass, when all Israel heard that Jeroboam was come again, that they sent and called him unto the congregation, and made him king over all Israel: there was none that followed the House of David, but the tribe of Judah only.
Then in verse 21;
" Then Rehoboam... assembled all the House of Judah, with
the tribe of Benjimin to fight against the House of Israel."
As you can see they are two seperate groups of people. Rehoboam
assembled the House of Judah to fight against the House of
Israel, and in verse 24, we see that God tells them; " Ye
shall not... fight against your brethren, the children of
Israel... for this thing is from me."
Now for the first
time in history/ the promise of the material wealth and the
promise of the sceptre was divided into two nations. Judah
remained in Jerusalem, it's capitol known as Judea, and Israels
territory was north of Judea, it's capitol being Samaria. Samaria
is often used to refer to the House of Israel in the Bible.
Immediately after becoming king, Jeroboam, king of the Israel, (not the Jews), set up two golden calves, introducing idol worshipping in the kingdom. He also set up a feast like Gods Feast of Tabernacles; a great sin in the eyes of God. We see this in the first book of Kings 12:28-33; " Whereupon the king took council, and made two calves of gold, and said unto them, It is too much for you to go up to Jerusalem: Behold, thy Gods 0 Israel, which brought thee up out of the land of Egypt. And he set the one in Bethel and the other in Dan. And this thing became a sin for the people went to worship before the one, even unto Dan. And he made an house of high places, and made preist of the lowest of the people, which was not of the son of Levi. And Jeroboam ordained a feast in the eighth month, on the fifteen day of the month, like unto the feast that is in Judah, and he offered upon the alter..."
This next point is
very important, God is going to remove Israel from mans sight
because of the sins of Jeroboam. They became known as the lost
ten tribes. One of the ways God has kept his mystery closed and
sealed is the way he blinded the eyes of man concerning the
differences between the House of Israel and the House of Judah.
In I Kings 14:15-16; " The Eternal shall smite Israel (not Judah), as a reed is shaken in the water, and he shall root up Israel out of this good land, which he gave to their fathers, and shall scatter them beyond the river because they have made their groves, provoking the Eternal to anger. And he shall give Israel up because of the sins of Jeroboam, who did sin, and who made Israel to sin."
In 721-718bc, The
House of Israel was conquered and the people were taken as slaves
into Assyria (Assyrians are known today as the Germans), and then
they were lost from view and became known as the lost 10 tribes
II Kings 17:18; " Therefore the Lord was very angry with Israel, and removed them out of his sight: There was none left but the tribe of Judah only." This makes it plain that Israel was removed out of his sight, not Judah; the Jews.
II Kings 17:22-23; " For the children of Israel walked in all the sins of Jeroboam which he did, they departed not from them; until the Lord removed Israel out of his sight, as he had said by all his servants, the prophets. So was Israel carried away out of their own land to Assyria unto this day, (unto this day being a-bout 620bc, when this was written).
In verse 24 we see; " And the King of Assyria brought men from Babylon, and from Cuthah, and from Ava, and from Hamath, and from Sepharvaim, and placed them in the cities of Samaria instead of the children of Israel: and they possessed Samaria and dwelt in the cities thereof." These foreigners that were brought in to possess the city of Samaria were living there when Jesus walked the earth. Only one priest returned from the captivity, and we can read about this in II Kings 17:27-28; " Then the king of Samaria commanded, saying, carry thither one of the priest whom ye brought from thence; and let them go and dwell there, and let him teach them the manner of the God of the land. Then one of the priest whom they had carried away from Samaria came and dwelt in Bethel; and taught them how they shall fear the Lord." Although the people did not follow God as we see in verse 29; " Howbeit every nation made Gods of their own..." The whole world including the Assyrians and the Babylonians religion was the Chaldean Mystery Religion; also known as the Babylonian Mystery Religion, stemming from Nim-rod and the Pagan sunworshipping.
A more detailed account of the captivity of Israel is given in II Kings 18:9-12 and 17:5-18, but to save space we will continue.
The House of Israel
was taken as slaves into Assyria arid later vanished from world
view. Although some escaped, as you will see.
In Hosea 3:4; For the children of Israel shall abide many days without a king, and without a prince, and without a sacrifice, and without an image, and without an ephod, and without teraphim." The House of Judah continued with a king at this time but the House of Israel did not have a king. At this time Gods promise to David remained in tact.
In Deuteronomy32:26 God says; " I said I would scatter them into corners, I would make the remembrance of them to cease from amoung men." As you see God has done just that; they became known as the lost 10 tribes. The Jews on the other hand have always been known; and you will soon see why.
God also said he would hide his face from the House of Israel, and because of that they lost the knowledge of the true religion, and the wisdom of the true God. Another way God managed to seal his mystery until the time of the end.
Notice in Isaiah 8:17; " And I will wait upon the Lord, that hideth his face from the House of Jacob..."
Also God says that he will stop speaking to these Israelites in their own native language; the Hebrew Language, and speak to them in another language. And this has also been accomplished, we do speak today with another language; the English Language. This is recorded in Isaiah 28:11; " For with stammering lips and another tongue will he speak to his people.
Also God says that the lost House of Israel will be known by a new name; this also has been accomplished. This is recorded in I-saiah 62:2; " And the Gentiles shall see thy righteousness, and all kings thy glory: and thou shalt be called by a new name, which the mouth of the Lord shall name."
Now before we begin the most fascinating part of the story, let's review what we've learned so far. The House of Israel led by Ephraim and Manasseh, which the birthright went to; the material blessing, were driven out of Gods sight. They were to become a mighty nation and a company of nations, possessing the gateways to his enemies. They were to become multiplied as the sand of the sea shores. They shall spread abroad north, east, south, and west. They will be known by a new name and speak a different language.
More than 130 years
after the House of Israel was lost from world view,
Nebuchadnezzar, King of Babylon carried the Jews (the House of
Judah) into captivity, about 585bc.
Seventy years after the captivity of the House of Judah; which consist of the tribes, Judah, Benjamin, and Levi, the House of Judah returned to Palestine to rebuild the temple and restore worship. In Ezra 2, we can see who returned. You can see that only the people from the House of Judah returned. No one from the House of Israel returned, which consist of Ephraim, Manasseh, Reuben, Dan, Simeon, Zebulun, Issachar,Gad, Naphtali, and Asher.
After the House of
Israel was removed from sight, Judah also began to sin, as we see
in II Kings 17:19; "Also Judah kept not the commandment of
the Lord their God, but walked in the statues of Israel which
Before the captivity of Judah, God had said through his prophet Hosea (4:15), "Though thou Israel, play the harlot, yet let not Judah offend."
Also God later said to Jeremiah (3:6-8)," The Lord said also unto me in the days of Josiah the king, Hast thou seen that which backsliding Israel hath done ? She has gone up upon every high mountain and under every green tree, and there hath played the harlot. And I said after she had done all these things, turn thou unto me. But she returned not. And her treacherous sister Judah saw it. And I saw, when for all the causes whereby backsliding Israel committed adultery, I had put her away, and given her a bill of divorce; yet her treacherous sister Judah feared not, but went and played the harlot also."
II Kings 23:27;
"And the Lord said, I will remove Judah also out of my
sight, as I have removed Israel, and will cast off this city,
Jerusalem which I have chosen, and the house of which I said, my
name shall be there."
Most people doesn't realize the significance of the Prophet Jeremiah's role in history. God raised up this prophet for a very important two phase mission. Another great mystery connected with the promises to the fathers.
The Bible mentions only 3 people sanctified for their respective offices before they were born, Jeremiah, John the Baptist, and Jesus. This may show the significance of Jeremiah's role.
Jeremiah 1:5, God
told Jeremiah, "Before I formed thee in the belly I new
thee, and before thou earnest forth out of the womb, I sanctified
thee, and I ordained thee a prophet unto the nations."
In verse 6-9; " Then said I, ah, Lord God ! Behold I cannot speak: for I am a child. But the Lord said unto me, say not, I am a child: for thou shall go to all that I shall send thee, and whatsoever I command thee, thou shalt speak. Be not afraid of their faces: for I am with thee to deliver thee, saith the Lord.
Then the Lord put
forth his hand, and touched my mouth. And the Lord said unto me,
Behold, I have put my words in thy mouth."
Now pay close attention to verse 10; " See I have this day set thee over nations^ and over kingdom^, to root out, and to pull down, and to destroy, and to throw down, to build, and to plant."
Notice Jeremiah was set over nations and kingdoms; more than one. He was to root out, pull down, destroy, throw down, to build and to plant. Jeremiah was used to warn the House of Judah of their sins against Gods laws. Then he was used to root out, and pull down, and to destroy, and throw down Davids throne; the Eternal Throne; the very one God said he would establish forever. But notice then he was to build and to plant it.
II Samual 7:10; " Moreover I will appoint a place for my people Israel, and will plant them, and they shall dwell in a place of their own, and move no more."
I Chronicles 17:9; " Also will I ordain a place for my people Israel, and will plant them and they shall dwell in their place and shall be moved no more."
The last recorded
king to reign over the House of Judah was King Zedekiah, which
was rooted out of Palestine in 585bc and taken to Babylon as a
slave. Although for God to keep his promise to David there must
remain a descendant of Davids sitting on the throne ruling over
some portion of Israelites. Where the throne was from 585bc and
our present day you will soon see.
In II Kings 24:18, we have the last recorded king to sit on the throne over Judah; " Zedekiah was twenty and one years old when he began to reign, and he reigned eleven years in Jerusalem, and his mothers name was Hamutal, the daughter of Jeremiah of Libnah."
In Jeremiah 39:1-7 we see the actual tearing down and rooting out of the Eternals Throne; " In the ninth year of Zedekiah King of Judah, in the tenth month, came Nebuchadnezzar king of Babylon and all his army against Jerusalem, and they besieged it. And in the eleventh year of Zedekiah, in the fourth month, the ninth day of the month, the city was broken up... Then the King of Babylon slew the sons of Zedekiah in Riblah before his eyes: also the king of Babylon slew all the nobles of Judah. Moreover he put out Zedekiah 's eyes, and bound him with chains, to carry him to Babylon." In the 52nd chapter of Jeremiah we see almost a word for word description of the same event except they add, " and put him (meaning King Zedekiah) in prison until the day of his death.
Here we see that the king of Babylon killed King Zedekiah's sons, all his noble men and put him in prison until the day of his death. The whole world has thought that the Eternals Throne; Davids Throne had ceased at this point.
There was a former king of Judah who was in the dungeons of Babylon, and he had sons to continue David's line. He was the former King Jeconiah (Jehoachin or Coniah), taken to Babylon in chains and was restored to honor 37 years after the captivity of the House of Judah, we see this in II Kings 25:27-30; " ... Evilmero-dach king of Babylon, in the year that he began to reign, did lift up the head of Jehoiachin, king of Judah out of prison; and he spake kindly to him, and set his throne above the thrones of the kings that were with him in Babylon." He was given the title king along with other vassal kings, but it was only a title, he had no authority.
Jesus Christ traced his roots back to Zorobabel, son of Sala-thiel, Jeconiah's son. Matthew 1:12 shows this. Although none of Jeconiah's sons were to ever reign upon the throne of David. God speaks of Jeconiah in Jeremiah 22:24,30; " As I live saith the Lord, though Coniah, the son of Jehoiakim king of Judah, were the signet upon my right hand, yet would I pluck thee thence." and " Thus saith the Lord, write ye this man childless, a man that shall not prosper in his days; and ruling anymore in Judah." You may be asking yourself how then can Jesus reign upon the throne of David if he traced his roots back to Jeconiah, and God said that none of Jeconiah's sons would ever reign upon this throne. Jesus traced his roots through his father Joseph and found that Joseph's descendants were from Jeconiah. This only shows the virgin birth of Mary to be true. Joseph wasn't actually Jesus' father as the Bible states, the God in heaven was. Joseph was Mary's husband but not Jesus' father. You can read about this in the first chapter of Matthew.
Jeremiah had completed his first part of his mission; to overthrow the throne of David. The next part of his Mission is the most exciting.
Jeremiah was thrown into prison, but then released with expense money and was able to complete the second part of his mission, as you can see in Jeremiah 39:11-12 and Jeremiah 40:2-5;
Nebuchadnezzer king of Babylon gave charge concerning Jeremiah to Nebuzaradan the captain of the guard, saying, take him and look well with him, and do him no harm; but do unto him even as he shall say unto thee." and in chapter 40; " And the captain of the guard took Jeremiah, and said unto him... Behold I loose thee this day from the chains which were upon thine hands. If it seem good unto thee to come with me into Babylon, come; and I will look well unto thee; but if it seem ill unto thee to come with me into Babylon, forbear: Behold all the land is before thee: whither it seem good and conveinient for thee to go, thither go... see the captain of the guard gave him victuals and a reward, and let him go."
The next couple of verses have been looked over for centuries; Jeremiah 40:6; " Then went Jeremiah unto Gedaliah the son of Ahi-kam to Mizpah; and dwelt with him amoung people that were left in the land;" (after the captivity of Babylon).
Gedaliah was made governor over a small portion of the Jews left in the land. He made his headquarters Mizpah, since Jerusalem was destroyed. The king of Ammon plotted with a Jew named Ishmael to kill Gedaliah, and they did kill him and part of the Jews, but Jeremiah survived.
Now in Jeremiah 41:10, this is an important piece of the puzzle that has been overlooked for centuries. " Then Ishmael carried away captive all the residue of the people that were in Miz-pah, even the kings daughters, and all the people that remained in Mizpah, whom Nebuzaradan, the captain of the guard had committed to Gedaliah... and carried them away captive, and departed to go over to the Ammonites." Notice all of King Zedekiah's sons and noble men were killed, but his daughters remained in the land. A very important piece of information, because they were left to carry on the dynasty of David. Now you'll see what happened to these daughters and where they went.
Soon a man named Johanan replaced Ishmael as leader, but he feared Nebuchadnezzars army and went and said to Jeremiah; " Let we beseech thee, our supplecation be excepted before thee, and pray for us unto the Lord thy God... that the Lord thy God may show us the way wherein we may walk." This is recorded in Jeremiah 42:2-3. So they went to Jeremiah for Gods help and in verse 6 they say; " We will obey the voice of the Lord our God."
The word of the Lord came to Jeremiah and told them not to fear that he would protect and deliver them. But the people wanted to flee into Egypt. God told them if they went to Egypt they would surely die, but they went anyway. In Jeremiah 42:15-16 we see God said; " If ye wholly set your faces to enter into Egypt, and go to sojourn there; then it shall come to pass, that the sword that ye feared, shall overtake you there in the land of Egypt, and the famine whereof ye were afraid, shall follow close after you there in Egypt, and there ye shall die." But we see in chapter 43:2, the peoples reply; " Thou speakest falsely, the Lord our God hath not sent thee to say go not into Egypt." And in 43:4 you see, " All the people, obeyed not the voice of the Lord, to dwell in the land of JudahJ."
In Jeremiah 43:5-7, we see Johanan " took all the remnant of Judah... even men and women, and children, and the kings daughters ... and Jeremiah the prophet, and Baruch the son of Neriah so they came into the land of Egypt.
In Jeremiah 44:12-14, God warns the Jews again through Jeremiah that they would die and added; " None shall return but such as shall escape." in Jeremiah 44:28; " Yet a small number that escape the sword shall return out of the land of Egypt into the land of Judah." As you see there were a few that would escape.
Baruch was Jeremiah's constant companion and secretary and God also promised to protect him; Jeremiah 45:2-5; " Thus saith the Lord, the God of Israel, unto thee, O Baruch... Behold that which I have built will I break down, and that which I have planted I will pluck up, even this whole land... But thy life will I give unto the for a prey in all places whither thou goest."
Previously God had told Jeremiah in chapter 15:11; " Verily it should be well with thy remnant." The only remnant left was the kings daughters. To continue in this same verse; " Verily I will cause the enemy to entreat thee well in the time of evil and in the time of affliction." This we saw earlier that Jeremiah was treated well and was released from prison with a reward.
In Isaiah 37:31-32 it is recorded; " For out of Jerusalem shall go forth a remnant, and they that escape out of Mount Zion: The Zeal of the Lord of Host shall do this. And the remnant that is escaped from the House of Judah shall again take root downward, and bear fruit upward." This same prophecy is recorded a-gain in II Kings 19:30-31.
As you see this remnant that shall escape shall take root downward, and be planted and bear fruit upward; the kings daughters. Wait until you see the full picture.
Now we need to take time to explain a mysterious breach that is recorded in the Bible.
Remember Judah, the son of Israel; the father of the tribe of Judah, he was also the father of twins. The first born was to inherit the promise of the sceptre. The midwife new that twins were going to be born. When the first one started coming out, his hand came out first, so she tied a scarlet thread around his hand. Then he withdrew his hand and the other one was born first. This is recorded in Genesis 38:27-30; " And it came to pass in the time of her travail, that, behold twins were in her womb. And it came to pass, when she travailed, that the one put out his hand: and the midwife took and bound upon his hand a scarlet thread, saying, this came out first. And it came to pass, as he drew back his hand, that, behold, his brother came out: and she said, How hast thou broken forth? This breach be upon thee: Therefore his name was called Pharez. And afterward came out his brother, that had the scarlet thread upon his hand: and his name was called Zarah."
Now you see this breach.At first glance it seems as a strange thing to be recorded in the Bible. Watch how God heals this breach and transfers the sceptre back to the Zarah line. David, King Zedekiah, and Jesus was all born of the Pharez line, not of the Zarah line.
The significance of this breach was to transfer the sceptre from the Pharez to the Zarah line. Such a transfer never occured before King Zedekiah of"Judah, who was descended from pharez, so it had to happen after his death.
Since David's line; the Pharez, was to remain on the throne through all generations, and the sceptre had to cross over to the Zarah line; this could only happen by a marriage between the two. Then this would heal the breach and Gods promise to David would stand.
History shows the descendants of Zarah became wanderers, going north within the Scythian Nations, and their descendants later migrated to Ireland, in the days of King David.
Meanwhile, the Pharez (Davids line) which possessed the sceptre, was high exalted, and the Zarah line, they felt they should rightly possess the sceptre, they were low, abased, so far as royal power was concerned.
Now notice in Ezekiel 21:18-19 that these verses are talking about the captivity of Judah by the king of Babylon. " ...also thou son of man, appoint thee two ways, that the sword of the king of Babylon may come..." Now notice verses 25-26; " And thou profane wicked prince of Israel, whose day is come, when iniquity shall have an end. Thus saith the Lord God; Remove the diadem, and take off the crown: This shall not be the same: exalt him that is low, and abase him that is high." As you can see this is referring to the transfer of the crown from the Pharez line to the Zarah line.
Continueing in verse 27, " I will overturn, overturn, overturn it, and it shall be no more, until he comes whose right it is; and I will give it to him." As you see here God says he is going to overturn the throne 3 times and then it will not be overturned again until Jesus comes to claim it. The first overturn, we have seen with the overthrowing of King Zedekiah. Two more overturns are to take place as you will soon see. All this to keep his promises to Abraham and David.
In Ezekiel chapter 17 the truth of the rebuilding of the throne and planting of the throne is revealed in a parable and a riddle. Notice in verse 1 that this message is sent to the House of Israel, not the House of Judah. Ezekiel is told to speak a parable and a riddle. The riddle is found in verses 3-10. Then in verse 11 God explaines it's meaning.
The first verse through the twenty first verse covers the first half of Jeremiah's mission. We'll begin with verse 1.
" And the word of the Lord came unto me saying, son of man, put forth a riddle, and speak a parable to the House of Israel, and say, thus saith the Lord God, A great eagle with great wings, long winged, full of feathers, which had divers colors, came unto Lebanon, and took the highest branch of the cedar:( In verse 12 we see that this is the King of Babylon, overthrowing King Zedekiah); verse 12; " Say now to the rebellious house, Know ye not what these things mean ? Tell them behold the king of Babylon is come to Jerusalem, and hath taken the king thereof, and the princes thereof, and l,ed them with him to Babylon."
Now back to verse 4; "He cropped off the top of his young twigs, and carried it into a land of traffic: He set it in a city of merchants." The meaning to this verse is found also in the 12th verse; this is referring to the kings sons as you can see.
Now verse 5; "He took also of the seed of the land and planted it in a fruitful field: he placed it by great waters, and set it as a willow tree." The meaning to this verse is found in verse 13; " And hath taken of the kings seed, and made a covenant with him, and hath taken a oath of him: he hath also taken the mighty of the land." As you see this is the people of Judah being taken.
Now in verse 6: " And it grew and became a spreading vine of low stature, whose branches turned towards him, and the roots thereof were under him: so it became a vine, and brought forth branchs, and shot forth sprigs." This pictures how the Jews were given a covenant whereby although they were being ruled over by Chaldeans, the Babylonians, they could still live in peace and grow.
The other great eagle of verses 7-10 are explained in verse 17 to represent Pharoah.
Now we can see what God says about the second half of Jeremiahs mission in verses 22-24; " Thus saith the Lord God, I will also take of the highest branch of the high cedar. From Gods own explanation of a cedar from the verses we saw earlier in this chapter, the cedar tree represents the nation of Judah. It's highest branch representing the king. The riddle we read earlier said Nebuchadnezzar took the highest branch, and as we saw in verse 12 the highest branch was the king. Now this parable says God, not any man but God will take of the highest branch, not the highest branch, but of the highest branch. And will set it, con-tinueing in verse22. " I will crop off from the top of his young twigs, a tender one " As we saw in verse 4 and 12 that the twigs were the children of the king. So a tender twig would surely represent his daughter, to continue; " and will plant it upon a high mountain and eminent " Throughout the Bible God uses the symbol mountain to represent a nation, so he is going to plant it in a nation, continueing in verse 23; " In the mountain in the height of Israel will I plant it " Notice here that he is going to plant this remnant with Israel. Yes he's sending this kings daughter to wherever Israel is and he is going to plant this remnant there. He is planting the Throne of David with the House of Israel ! Although remember this throne is to be overthrown 2 more times. Let's continue in verse 23; " And it shall bring forth boughs and bear fruit, and be a goodly cedar: and under it shall dwell all fowl of every wing: In the shadows of the branches thereof shall they dwell." Notice the remnant is to bear fruit, which only a female can do.
Now in verse 24; remembering God uses trees to represent nations as you saw earlier in this chapter; " And all the trees of the field shall know that I the Lord have brought down the high tree, have exalted the low tree, have dried up the green tree, and had made the dry tree to flourish: I the Lord have spoken and have done it." As you can see this is referring to the Zarah and Pharez line again. The high tree being Judah, which held the throne for 130 years after Israel was taken, and the low tree being Israel who was low, and now is exalted and made high.
Israel had been independant in Ireland for 4 centuries. They had a king that King Zedekiah's daughter was to be grafted into. The Irish Israelites had escaped and had not gone into captivity, when the Israelites were taken into captivity by the Assyrians. We will return to this point shortly.
Before I give away the punch line, let's see what God says about where these Israelites are.
In Amos 9:9; " For ,lo, I will command, and I will sift the House of Israel among all nations, like as corn is sifted in a sieve, yet shall not the least grain fall upon the earth."
According to Hosea Ephraim followed after the east wind; the east wind blows west. So we know from Hosea 12:1, they went west. " Ephraim feedeth on wind, and followeth after the east wind..."
In Psalms 89 God
tells David that he will establish his throne forever in verses
3-4, and in verse 25 he says, " I will set his hand also in
In Jeremiah 3:11-12; " And the Lord said unto me, the backsliding Israel hath justified herself more than treacherous Judah. Go and procliam these words toward the north, and say return thou backsliding Israel..." Remember Israel had already been lost from view during Jeremiah's time.
Other locations in the Bible show that in the latter days that the House of Israel will come from the land of the north, as in Jeremiah 3:18; " In those days, the House of Judah shall walk with the House of Israel, and they shall come together out of the land of the north..."
In Hosea 11:8-10; " How shall I give thee up, Ephraim?... I will not execute the fierceness of mine anger... Then the children shall tremble from the west."
In Jeremiah 31, you can see that it is talking about the House of Israel because of verse 2,4,5,6, and 9. In verse 8 you see; " Behold, I will bring them from the north country and gather them from the coast of the earth..." As you can see this is referring to the latter days by the expressions in chapter 30 and 31 .
In Isaiah chapter 49 you can see from verses 3 and 6 that these verses are referring to Israel not Judah, and in the 12th verse you see; " Behold these shall come from far: and lo, these from the north, and from the west ( In the original Hebrew language there was not a word for northwest, so they would say the north and the west, meaning northwest) and these from the land of Sinim." From ancient records we all know the Sinim's are the people of Australia. With this verse only we can see that these lost tribes of Israel are northwest of Jerusalem and Australia are part of them.
In the same chapter verse 1 you can see this is addressed to the islands of Israel; " Listen 0 Isles..."
In Jeremiah 31:9-10; "... for I am a father to Israel, and Ephraim is my firstborn. Hear the word of the Lord, 0 ye nations, and declare it in the isles afar off..."
Isaiah 41:1,8; " Keep silence before me 0 islands... Thou Israel, art my servant, Jacob whom I have chosen."
Before we see the rest of the evidence that points to the location of Israel, let's review. The descendants of Israel are to become a mighty nation and a company of nations. They are northwest of Jerusalem, in the islands in the sea. They are to possess all the gateways of their enemies. They are multiplied as the sand on the sea shore. They are known by a new name and speak a new language. And they possess the Throne of David with one of David's descendants sitting on it until Jesus returns.
Take a map of the world and lay a line due northwest from Jerusalem across the continent of Europe, until you come to the sea, and the islands in the sea; there you will find the British Islands ! 1
The Hebrew meaning for the word British is; Brit- meaning covenant and ish- meaning man; Covenant man !
God said that the
Israelites will be known by a new name. In Genesis 21:12; "
For in Isaac shall thy seed be called." and in Romans 9:7;
" In Isaac shall thy seed be called." and in Hebrews
11:18; " of whom it was said that in Isaac shall thy seed be
called." In Amos 7:16, the Israelites are called the House
of Isaac. In the history books you can read about the Anglo
Saxons migrating to the British Islands. Many people confuse
these with the German Saxons who derived their name from the high
German word sahs, meaning sword or knife.The Anglo Saxons
although got their name from Isaacs sons.They were descendants of
Isaac. In the Hebrew spelling vowels were not used. They dropped
the I from Isaac and it became the modern name Saac' s sons, and
through the years became a shorter manner, Saxons.
God intended for us to find these lost Israelites in the latter days. He set up signs and waymarks along their way to show us exactly the way they went.
In Jeremiah 31:21 God tells Ephraim, " Set thee up waymarks, make thee high heaps: set thine heart towards the highway, even the way which thou wentest..."
In Genesis 49: 17; " Dan shall be a serpent by the way." Another translation of by the way from the original Hebrew word is serpents trail. So you have a serpents trail or a serpent by the way. It is a significant fact that Dan named every place they went after their father Dan. Joshua 19:47; "And the coast of the children of Dan, went out too little for them: therefore the children of Dan, went up to fight against Leshem, and took it and smote it with the edge of the sword, and possessed it, and dwelt therein, and called Leshem, Dan, after the name of Dan their father." In Judges 18:11-12; " The Danites took Kirjathjearim and called that place Mahanehdan unto this day." And in verse 29 we see the same set of Danites went to Laish and captured it, and they called the name of the place Dan after their father.
So you can see that everywhere the Danites went they called the place after their father Dan. They left their waymarks or their serpents trail. Remember that in the original Hebrew spelling they never used vowels, so Dan, Don, Dun, and Din would all be considered the same.
In judges 5:17 we see " Dan abode in ships." In Deuteronomy 33:22; " Dan is a lions whelp: He shall leap from Bashan."
When Israel was captured by the Assyrians, the Danites struck out in ships and sailed through the Mediterranean and north to Ireland. Along the shores of the Mediterranean they left their waymarks; Den, Don, and Din. Ireland history records show the new settlers of Ireland at this exact time to be the Tuatha De Danaan, meaning translated Tribe of Dan. In Ireland we see they left these waymarks; Danslaugh, Dansower, Dundalk, Donegal Bay, Donegal City, Dunglo, Dingle,and Dunsmor (meaning more Dans).
The tribe of the Danites occupied two seperate districts in the Holy land before the Assyrian captivity. The southern Danites left the waymarks we have just seen. The northern Danites were taken into captivity in Assyria, and with the rest of the ten tribes of Israel traveled the overland route. They lived just west of the Black Sea, and there we see these waymarks; Dnieper, Dniester, and the Don.
In later ancient geology we find these waymarks leading to the British Isles; Danau, Daninn, Danaster, Dandari, Danez, Don, Dan, Udon, Eridon, Danes, Denmark (which means translated Dans mark).
In the British Isles we find these waymarks, Dundee, Dun Raven, and in Scotland we find Dans, Dons, and Duns.
Jeremiah's planting is seen'in the"Irish" history and legends, and it goes like this.
Long before VOObc, a colony of Tuathe De Dans arrived in ships and drove out the other tribes and settled there. Later in the days of David, a colony of the line of Zarah arrived in Ireland from the near east. Then in 569bc (the date of Jeremiah's transplanting) an elderly, white haired patriarch, sometimes referred to as a saint, came to Ireland. With him was the princess of an eastern king and a companion called Simon Barach, Barach's name is spelled different in different history books, but you can see it's referring to the same person.
The princess had a Hebrew pet name; Tephi; Tea-Tephi. Tea-Tephi, the daughter of King Zedekiah is not the same person as Tea, daughter of Ith who lived in the days of King David.
Along with Jeremiah, Barach, and Tea-Tephi was a prince of the King of Ireland who was in Jerusalem during the captivity of Judah. This prince married the princess; Tea-Tephi; daughter of King Zedekiah, shortly after 585bc. They had a son that was about twelve years old when they arrived in Ireland.
Jeremiah brought with him some remarkable things including a harp, an ark, and a stone called Liafail. The Hebrew language is read from right to left and the English language is read from left to right. The word Liafail says the same thing in both languages. All the Kings of Ireland, Scotland, and England, have been crowned sitting over this stone; Jacobs pillow stone. This stone you can read about in Gen. 28:1.8. For centuries you could see it'.sitting under the coronation chair in West Minister Abbey, in London, with a sign by it saying, " Jacob's pillow stone." Last week it was moved.
The Royal Prince who married Tea-Tephi, was crowned king and given the title Herremon. Don't mistake him for Herremon of Gede, of King David's day. These are not the same.
The prince and princess continued on the throne of Ireland until it was overturned and moved to Scotland, and then overturned and moved to England, where it remains in London today continueing the same dynasty with the reign of Queen Elizebeth II.
As you see God said he would overturn the Throne of David 3 times. First with the Babylonians, second, when the throne moved from Ireland to Scotland, and third, when it moved from Scotland to London, England.
The prince was of the line of Zarah, and the princess was of the line of Pharez. Upon their marriage, the breach was healed. Now you see plainly that the one mighty nation is the United States of America, and the company of nations is Great Britain; with the British Comman wealth of nations.
It is apparent that Ephraim and Manasseh were to recieve the birthright jointly, and then to seperate later. In Genesis 48, we saw that Jacob first passed the birthright on to Joseph's two sons jointly, and then later spoke to them separately, saying Manasseh was to become the one great nation (U.S.A.), and Ephraim was to become the company of nations (Great Britain).
And for a prophecy of the latter days we saw in Genesis 49:22: Jacob said, "Joseph is a fruitful bough, even a fruitful bough by a well; whose branches run over the wall." This is speaking of Manasseh and Ephraim combined. This describes how we were to become a colonizing people, branching forth from the British Isles around the world. You may ask yourself how can the U.S.A. be the descendants of Manasseh, since there are people from every nationality in America. Remember in Amos 9:9 it said we were to be sifted through many nations, yet not a grain to fall to the earth; or be lost in other words. This doesn't mean everyone who lives in America are descendants of Manasseh, although history also shows that Israel always did absorb the Gentiles, and they became Israelites by living in their land and marrying an Israelite.
Probably coincidental? Although, Israel had 12 sons, then Joseph had Ephraim and Manasseh, making 13 tribes of Israel, just as the 13 states America started out with.
